    Thanks, got it working to add my backup to the SD card. But what I'm wondering is, how would I access my homebrew partition? Would I have to switch the partitions from primary to logical and so on? Not sure if having them both logical would have them show up. But seeing as Windows doesn't like showing two or more partitions from the SD card.

    But if I want to add more homebrew, I'll have to change the homebrew partition to primary? I guess using Acronis Disk Director will have to be it for change the partition back and forth, unless there's a quicker solution. I thank you for your help by the way.

    It's got to be with Windows. Partitioning an SD card must be a no no. No matter what, it'll never show the second partition. I think I'm going to give up on this one. Just fill my SD card with my videos off my computer for MPlayer. Thanks for the help though.

    Yeah, this is one things I hate about Windows. But it's ok, I'll just get another SD card or more DVD-Rs for my backups.

    Why not get a USB thumb drive? Then you can run your MPlayer (or other apps, loaders) from SD and play your games and watch your movies from USB. MPlayer plays a good variety of video formats (divx,xvid,avi,mpeg) and when not watching movies you can format it with WBFS Manager and put your Wii backups on it. I tried watching a movie from the SD card and MPlayer would not load it, maybe because the app and the movie were on the same SD card.
